This makes enough sauce for 2 lbs of pasta or 8 servings.

You will need extra grated Parmesan cheese to sprinkle over the pasta that you have added the sauce to. Do this just before serving. Leftover sauce freezes well. Use to flavor soups, or on broiled meat or fish, or as a spread on toasted French Bread.
